More hints of a small block 427

Another Mustang mag was touting this rumour.
Personally, since the Vette is getting one, I think
perhaps it would be a good idea for Ford to consider
putting one in a specialty Mustang, rather than have
the top echelon dominated by a smaller blown engine.
It may be "old school" but the engine will be more desirable,
IMO than the alternative.

Why? Fewer parts and (relative) ease of service is all I can think of.

Rich,

I haven't seen anything about this. Where have you read this at?

Personally, I agree. Blown motors are great for making big easy
horsepower, but a larger displacement motor can still put out decent
horsepower and do it for less money.

The bore spacing on the modular V8 is so small they would have to have on
hell of a long stroke. The 5.4 already has a longer stroke than any standard
Ford car V8. Longer than a 514 stroker 385 series. The now obsolete 351W
could do it. And it even has a real crankshaft:) And Edelbrock just brought
some good heads for it. Not that Ford would even think of bringing it
back...

You can add a blower to anything. Starting with a decent engine only helps.

I just saw a couple or three a week ago at the Carlisle Vette show.
Magnificent is the way i describe them. At least you'll know it when
its running down the road. GM brought back the coke bottle look for
these cars. All 4 corners are flared out and the interior just
screems that this is a race car legal for highway use. The cost is a
bargain compared to the Lamborghini that passed me on the way to the
show. I saw it coming from about 3/4 of a mile back, very low to the
ground, I had no clue what it was until it passed and I could see the
marquis on the tail.

I was browsing a bunch of performance mags and it was mentioned.
I seem to remember this engine (not the modular, as far as I know)
was used in some kind of "one off" at shows about two years ago.

Rich,

Yes, that 427 motor made rounds under the hood of one off show car
called the 427. There was also a 6.1 liter "Hurricane" engine Ford was
developing that got scrapped. But as of right there are no new V8s in
Ford future, that I know of.
